Intern

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I worked at Mattel as an intern

ProsGreat place to work. Everyone is really personable and most people are passionate about their job. The job culture is very evident and promotes innovation as well as a positive work environment. Work/life balance couldn't be better with occasional overtime expected during the busy toy season and for trade shows. Work did not just seem like tedious busy work but really seemed to have direct impact on a given project. Overall awesome experience.

ConsNone that really stand out.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Project Manager (Former Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I worked at Mattel as a contractor for less than a year


Pros: Come on, you're making toys! Super fun workplace, especially around the holidays. Approachable executive, creative co-workers… Cons: Bad, overpriced food on premises. Limited parking. No pension, seriously? Usual HR nonsense. Non-sensical internal advancement… Advice to Senior Management: Less is more. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
